Goats' eyes have rectangular pupils.

The Norfolk Black Chicken, brings us the most tasty and succulent chicken. Certainly one of the best chickens I've ever tasted in the British Isles.

“The Breakfast of Champions”

I have been going to The Ivy (The Ivy, Jumeirah Hotel, Dubai) every weekend for months for the iconic Dingley Dell Breakfast. It’s what a real breakfast should be the Beer and Treacle Bacon is absolutely fantastic. 

This is a review posted on Tripadvisor recently by John B, of Zurich, Swtizerland, who clearly enjoys Direct Meats Beer and Treacle Bacon that we export to Dubai. 

You dont have to go to Dubai however to tast this superb bacon just contact our Sales Dept on 01787 223364

I have been using the Dedham vale beef from direct meats for almost a year and I have never been disappointed. Being a new business we have found people regularly returning just to have the beef, especially the fillet. I have worked all over the world and the quality of the Dedham vale rib eye and fillet are among the best I have used. The flavour of the beef is so good our customers regularly comment about it being the best they have ever tasted.

Many thanks for the quality and consistency of the Dedham Vale beef that Direct Meats have been supplying to us for over two years, as chefs we sometime look around for better products but with the Dedham Vale we already know we have the best which our customers come back for time after time. Keep it up!



I have been using Direct Meat solely for 14 months now and can honestly say that their produce is unrivalled in my experience! I use only the finest products on their price list from their home smoked dingley dell pork rumps to hand made sausages. Provenance is very important to me here and the stand out quality at direct meats has to be their relationship with Dedham Vale beef! It is always beautifully aged and marbled regardless of which cut I require. The meat is always treated and wrapped in muslin cloth to allow it to breath and it is a pleasure to do business with a company that takes these things into account. They have even started up a range of wagyu beef for their more discerning clientele which, of course, is known to be the finest choice throughout the hospitality industry! I will be using Direct Meat for all my Beef for year to come!

Adam at the College Arms was sent some of our cold smoked pork rump steaks for his specials menu. Upon trying one for himself this morning he told us it was "absolutely gorgeous" and he said to say well done for producing such a nice product!

Greenberry cafe have recently ordered our newly developed cold smoked rump steaks, their feedback so far is they have told us they are really happy with them & that the rumps went down really well with the customers.

Based in leafy south London, gastro pub The Palmerston has been supplied meat by us since mid 2012. It boasts a modern British menu featuring fresh seasonal dishes served in a relaxed, welcoming atmosphere. Salt beef has been a recent promotional item of ours and James at The Palmerston loves our salt brisket! Perfect for his lunch menu and will be ordering more.

I have been using Direct Meats for over three years now and have found them to be thoroughly professional, affordable and 100% reliable, the products that they supply are always of the highest quality.

As part of our partnership, myself and my senior chefs all recently visited their HQ which just underlined for us what a professional outfit they are as well as visiting a local farm that supplies Direct Meats, a local abattoir and of course with lunch and drinks thrown in for good measure.

I would not hesitate in recommending Direct Meats as one of your suppliers.

Head Chef, Tuttons

I have worked closely with Direct meats over the last 4 years, liaising directly with Martin Blackwell, Tom Roberts & Mandy Ferguson. The welcome, support & general help we have received has been second to none.
We have visited the abattoir with them and then had a comprehensive tour of their facilities at direct meats. These have included a breakdown of how the different products are prepared & packaged to ensure exemplary due diligence, Demonstrations of butchery techniques, the students have then been invited to have a go themselves. The visits have included tips & visual guidance on what to look for when purchasing quality meat.

Through Direct meats we have formed links with Dingley Dell pork & a number of Michelin starred chefs who have visited our college to talk to our students and to give demonstrations of their restaurant dishes. Their professionalism & commitment to delivering a quality service shines through every time we visit. On returning to college the students are inspired & enriched by their experience.

I have been using direct meats as my wholesale butcher for over five years. Over that period I have found them to be very reliable both in their professionalism and the constant high quality of their produce, nothing is too much bother, or any request to large.
The team is very friendly, efficient and a pleasure to do business with.

I wouldn't hesitate to recomend them to any business both large or small.

SPAM gets its name from 'spiced ham'.

Chicken soup was classed as an aphrodisiac in the Middle Ages.

The Chinese were preserving and salting pork bellies around 1500BC

A pig's squeal can be as loud as 115 decibels, 3 decibels louder than a supersonic airliner.

Cows were first domesticated for beef in the regions of Greece and Turkey about 4,000 years ago.

To get the same amount of zinc found in 3 oz. of beef, you would have to consume five 8 oz. glasses of milk and three 4 oz. cans of tuna.
